8:00PM - 8:30PM - Multi-monitor Editorial and Finishing Workflow - Neil Smith
We’re all being tasked with doing more in less time and doing multiple things at the same time … how can editors, VFX artists and colorists manage to accomplish all the things on their ever expanding To Do List? One solution is to work even more hours and cut down on sleep … the healthier alternative is to become the multi-tasker supreme. With the right applications combined with the new high powered OpenCL GPUs from AMD, content creators can now work on multiple monitors running different applications all at the same time. Neil Smith, CEO of LumaForge will demonstrate how one artist armed with one PC and SIX monitors can do more damage in 30 minutes than a colony of beavers preparing for spring break.
Join Neil as he takes you through an end-to-end Adobe Creative Cloud, DaVinci Resolve and RedcineX-Pro integrated 4K workflow demonstration all running on a single PC with the new AMD FirePro W9100 professional graphics card driving six monitors!
